How to recycle & recover metals from waste printed circuit boards & Li-ion batteries ? Meet Dr Sandeep PANDA on the second and last online Master Session

The demand for key metals such as Cu, Co, Li and Ni (referred to as E-mobility metals in the battery & EV manufacturing sector) is constantly rising. Among the different types of secondary post-consumption wastes (e-waste, spent batteries, slags), e-wastes count among the fastest growing and most problematic waste streams in the world. The main reason is due to their geographical distribution, highly heterogeneous nature and poorly understood “mineralogy”. The presentation will briefly discuss the recycling of two urban mine wastes i.e. waste printed circuit boards and spent Li-ion batteries using a non-traditional bio-based approach under the scope of the ongoing BaCLEM project funded through the ERA-MIN2 2019 call.

Dr Sandeep PANDA is currently working as Assistant Professor at the Department of Mining Engineering (Mineral – Metal Recovery and Recycling Research Group) at Suleyman Demirel University - SDU, Turkey. His main research areas include: (Bio) hydrometallurgical approaches for metal extraction from primary and secondary resources, Bio-desulphurisation, Bio & Chemical approaches for Mine Water treatment and application of eco-friendly approaches for sustainable mineral-metal waste recycling and management. Since 2009, he has been involved as a Principal/Co-Principal Investigator or a Team Member in many R&D and Industrial research projects (at both National and International level). As of 2020, he has published 46 International journal papers, 4 book chapters, and 3 Editorial Books that have received over 950 citations with an h-index of 19. His research work has attracted the attention of many press and media outlets and seen him presented with several academic awards. He is an active member of a number of prestigious professional bodies, a reviewer and board member of reputed International journals, and has also served as a technical/scientific committee member in various reputed international conferences.
